DALLAS — Organizers of the upcoming Industry Summit announced the annual Special Finance Conference will return for the seventh consecutive year. The event will be held Sept. 11–14, 2017, at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Dallas. It will be a homecoming of sorts for the SF Conference, which was held in Dallas before joining forces with the former F&I Conference to create Industry Summit in 2011.

Special Finance Conference remains the industry’s premier training event for dealers and dealership professionals. The curriculum includes the basics of setting up and operating a special finance department and advanced instruction in BDC, sales, F&I and more.

The conference also marks the annual release of Goebel’s Special Finance Benchmarks, a comprehensive report built from data contributed by hundreds of dealerships around the United States.

“Special Finance Conference is a powerful event and an integral part of Industry Summit,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom and Auto Dealer Today. “Dealers working in the subprime space — and those who aspire to do so — simply cannot miss it.”

Registration for Industry Summit 2017 is open at the event’s website. Attendees who register by Aug. 11 will enjoy a $100 discount. To discuss sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact David Gesualdo at (727) 947-4027 or via email.
